Mu­si­cal step into spring

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

DO­MINIC Col­lege will be awash with the sound of horns this Fri­day when the Der­went Val­ley Con­cert band blows into Glenorchy for its an­nual Spring School.

The band is con­duct­ing a three-day work­shop to ed­u­cate the next wave of would-be wood­wind, brass and per­cus­sion mu­si­cians.

Der­went Val­ley Con­cert Band lead sax­o­phone player and co-or­di­na­tor Jess Tay­lor said the spring school aimed to “pro­vide good-qual­ity tu­ition in a fun and ex­cit­ing way.”

“The Der­went Val­ley Con­cert Band fea­tures the best of the best brass band mu­si­cians statewide,” she said.

Der­went Val­ley Con­cert Band con­sists of more than 80 mem­bers across three dif­fer­ent grades — de­vel­op­ment, in­ter­me­di­ate and se­nior.

Ac­com­plished con­duc­tors Nathaniel Grif­fiths and Si­mon Reade will be on hand to help keep the par­tic­i­pants in tune.

To con­clude the work­shop on a high note, there will be spe­cial con­cert by the DVCB.

The fourth an­nual Spring School will be held from Fri­day to Sun­day at a cost of $50 per per­son, which cov­ers all meals and tu­ition.

To join the 100 peo­ple who have al­ready reg­is­tered for the event visit and com­plete the on­line reg­is­tra­tion form or email work­shop

The Der­went Val­ley Con­cert Band will cel­e­brate its 25th an­niver­sary next Satur­day with a gala con­cert at The Friends’ School in Ho­bart.
